The Abaco's in the Bahamas. For a family cruise you can't afford to miss it. Man-O-War Cay in the Abaco's is actually renowned for their boat building, in case you had a taste for the custom =)

TQA: I am really partial to Beneteau but they dont seem to be highly rated as a Bluewater vessel. I basically need a 3 separate berth layout, about the 42 - 45 foot range. I do like the Moody and Northwinds. I believe there are many, many non offshore boats cruising in the Bahamas, but if we decide to continue on to other lands we will need something more substantial. I had a price of $80,000 - $100,000 in mind. I will then have enough to put another $20,000 or so in upgrades.

Two things will happen with the boat.
a. We will either be done with cruising after 2 years and sell the boat.
b. We will love the lifestyle and continue travelling, most likely to the Med. If the Med is ridiculous in pricing, it might be South Pacific.

Thanks for Daves name, I may contact him. I heard that Florida is full of boats but many in disrepair and basically abandoned. Is this the case with the Islands?
